President Trump's prayer for Las Vegas pretty much says it all.

'We pray for the day that evil is banished and the innocent are safe from hatred and fear,' Trump said. 'May God bless the souls of the lives that our lost, may God give us the grace of healing and may God provide the healing family with the strength to carry on.'

One bit from the report caught my eye:

Police were able to pinpoint Paddock relatively quickly since the gunfire he emitted triggered the smoke alarms in the hotel.

They used explosives to blow the door off his room, but by then it was too late - Paddock had shot himself dead. ...

Two on-duty Las Vegas police officers who engaged the shooter have been hospitalized.

What does it mean that these brave officers "engaged" the shooter without entering his room? If they were at the concert, they were 1,700 feet away from the shooter. I can't imagine that they were shooting up into the hotel.

I don't understand how anyone could kill this many people from such a distance without military weapons.

Update:

David French thinks the shooting is strange too:

So, a person who's "not a gun guy" has either expended untold thousands of dollars to legally purchase fully-automatic weapons, somehow found them on the black market, or purchased and substantially modified multiple semi-automatic weapons -- and did so with enough competence to create a sustained rate of fire. This same person also spent substantial sums purchasing just the right hotel room to maximize casualties. I cannot think of a single other mass shooter who went to this level of expense and planning in the entire history of the United States.
